Faulkner Gallery

This afternoon’s program features an ensemble cast of performers: pianists Allen Bishop and Paula Hatley, bassoonists Simon Knight and Paul Mori, flutist Sherylle Englander, clarinetist Per Elmfors, oboist Adelle Rodkey, and  violinist Claude-lise Lafranque. Each performer contributes to a broad array of chamber-music pieces spanning almost two centuries. On the repertoire roster is a collection of works that play with conventions of formal organization, “formal musings:” Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s (1756 – 1791) Sonata in G major, K. 379 for violin and piano; the Quatuor à vents by Jean Françaix (1912 – 1997); the Sonate, Op. 71, for bassoon and piano by Charles Koechlin (1867 – 1950); and Four Old Tunes by Gordon Jacob (1895 – 1984). Admission is free.

This concert is co-sponsored by the Santa Barbara Public Library.
